Most if not all these issues are related to Wayland (other than
Discover, which is something else). Try KDE under Xorg.
Not so easy to do. The login screen allows a choice between Wayland
and Xorg; but the change is not sticky. The only instructions I can
find on the web are for Gnome and require editing a file
/etc/gdm/custom.conf that does not exist on my system; in fact there is
no directory /etc/gdm/ .
Various problems are cured; others persist. See my comments above.
